Ipswich Town have confirmed that former England midfielder Kieron Dyer is undergoing tests in hospital after suffering a collapsed lung last month.
The 42-year-old ex-Newcastle United winger withdrew from television show Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins in September, having collapsed due to a cracked rib that punctured his lung.
League One club Ipswich on Wednesday revealed that their Under-23 manager has been hospitalised.
“The club can confirm that Town U23 manager Kieron Dyer is currently undertaking tests in hospital,” Ipswich said in a statement.
“Everyone at Ipswich Town Football Club sends their best wishes to Kieron at this time.
“We ask everyone to respect Kieron’s privacy, and we will be making no further comment on the matter.”
Dyer won 33 caps for England after starting his playing career at Ipswich and spent eight years with Newcastle. He also played for West Ham United, QPR and Middlesbrough.
